Movie: We Are Twisted F*cking Sister!

"The film follows Twisted Sister from their beginnings as a cross-dressing glam band, playing cover songs for 4 shows a night, 6 nights a week – from New Jersey bowling alleys and Long Island beach bars, to the suburban mega-clubs of the late 70s/early 80s, and on to their bust-out appearance on the UK rock TV show, 'The Tube'. Through it all, Twisted stood ready to do or die, not just for the music, but also 'the show'. They refused to play the usual bar band role of 'human juke box for drunk and horny teens'. Every night, the band would give their all to the crowd, and mounted a full frontal attack on anyone not participating. They were going to force you to pay attention – and you were going to have fun whether you liked it or not."
